Introduce the powers of magnetism with the Primary Science Magnet Set. This award-winning set gives kids hands-on experience with scientific concepts like polarization, attraction and repulsion, magnetic fields, and more through interactive experiments that feel more like play than learning. Winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Gold Award, this set includes 14 chunky plastic pieces and 10 double-sided activity cards featuring step-by-step instructions for a variety of magnetic experiments that are suitable for kids ages 4 to 12. Give your kids a head start in science with the Primary Science Magnet Set.

Featuring 10 activity cards and 6 more downloadable experiments ranging in difficulty from beginning to challenging, the Primary Science Magnet Set provides plenty of hands-on, interactive practice with the concept of magnetism. Engaging experiments visually demonstrate polarization, magnetic fields, magnetization and demagnetization, attraction and repulsion, and other key scientific concepts. Full-color, double-sided activity cards provide a materials list (some experiments require common household items that are not included in the kit) and photos on one side, and step-by-step instructions on the reverse, as well as challenge questions and additional activity suggestions. Some cards also feature fun “Did you know?” trivia facts about magnets.

The Primary Science Magnet set includes 10 hands-on magnetic experiments including: (1) The Amazing Maze – discover how magnets retain their magnetic force, even through other objects, by using your magnetic post to move magnetic bugs around a maze through its plastic bottom; (2) Floating Magnets – explore attraction and repulsion using a magnetic pole and magically “floating” ring magnets; (3) Snap-on Cars – experiment with polarization using snap-together cars; (4) Paperclips – test the strength of each magnet by experimenting with the number of paperclips each can hold.

Features:
  • Set of 14 pieces includes a horseshoe magnet, magnetic post, 4 ring magnets, bar magnets, magnetic bugs, maze, string, and 2 snap-on magnetic cars
  • 10 full-color double-sided activity cards with step-by-step instructions and photos
  • Provides hands-on experience with the concepts of polarization, magnetic fields, magnetization and demagnetization, attraction and repulsion, and more
  • Leveled experiment cards are perfect for kids ages 4 to 12

My boys (4 and 5) are curious about everything. Now that my one is in Kindergarten he is starting to learn more about all sorts of subjects, science especially. Magnets are something that always amazed me so I admit I was just as excited to check out the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources, as my boys were!

This kit includes 14 pieces including 10 double-sided activity cards. The activity cards are both easy and challenging and some require some household objects such as water or paperclips. The set though was fun on its own for us. My boys were amazed at how the magnets would stick together one way and not the other way. I started teaching them about polar opposites, magnetism and science in general. The pieces that this kit comes with are ones that I would have never thought of using together. There is a big horsehoe magnet perfect to work little magnetic ladybugs through a maze. Ring magnets and a magnetic post are fun because you can make the magnetics float on the pole. My sons favorite though is the Snap-on Cars. You can push the cars together and watch them spin away from one another or magnetically snap them together to zoom around. This is a simple kit but fun and perfect for young learners.

I couldn't agree more with my kids that Science is so much fun! Now I will admit that sometimes teaching your kids all about the how's and whys of science can seem like a huge daunting task but it doesn't have to be! Why as of recently, I've been teaching my four year old daughter the wonders and ways of magnetism, thanks to a great new science activity set from Learning Resources!

First thing to know is that the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources is geared toward children ages 4-12 years old. The set comes with 10 double sided activity cards, an extremely helpful guide, and lots of other eye catching items (14 total) that have kept my daughter quite engaged in learning and exploring the many different ways magnets work.

A few of the activities we tried out where the Amazing Maze, in which the key concept was that magnets can retain their magnetic force through other objects. My daughter took the large yellow magnet in the set on moved it around underneath the leaf maze to move both of the included ladybugs! She totally was intrigued and having a lot of fun.

The next activity we did together was the Floating Magnets, in which we used the four round magnets and the long pole. This activity taught my daughter all about how magnets can attract and repel! She was very fascinated by everything that we did and has learned with the set with me during our schooling time and has enjoyed playing with it many times all on her own. My four year old loves to tinker so this set has been a wonderful educational tool in our home giving her the freedom to explore in learning all about polarity, attraction, and repulsion in fun hands on way!

I highly recommend The Primary Science Magnet Set for any home or school classroom. The set is colorful, durable, engaging, and encourages kids to be hands on in learning new things!

My almost 3 year old is already getting a lot out of playing with this magnet set. The only thing keeping it from a 5 star rating is that the magnets don't seem very strong, in my opinion. But perhaps that's not a bad thing for young children. The suggested activities that come with this set are fantastic!

Magnets are, by far, one of the most fascinating things for children to experience. The excitement of polarity seems like magic to them. This Primary Science Magnet Set by Learning Resources is a wonderfully unique magnet set. The ladybug maze is adorable! Using the large yellow magnet or the purple magnetic post underneath the maze shows children how magnets can pull items (the ladybugs) around. Using the two cars teaches them that magnets can also push items around. This set also comes with a set of activity cards and simple experiments to get children started. They are laminated to last through many preschool science sessions. The children absolutely loved the discs that seemed to float above each other on the purple post. The flat magnets fit on the underside of the cars and moving the polar sides together causes one to flip around the other direction and click to the other. The surprised squeals and giggles were proof that science really is fun! Learning Resources offers many different wonderful learning toys that will captivate and fascinate your children. Disclosure: I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
